In addition to these changes, players will also be able to take part in the upcoming limited time mode “Shooting Test #1.” This will be the first step towards an overhauled weapon system, which should reduce the amount of frustration caused by lucky misses.

Here’s what Shooting Test #1 involves:

Weapons now have first-shot accuracy, indicated by a red glow on the reticle. This is applied when:

  • Standing still
  • Aiming (not hip-firing)
  • Aim spread is at peak accuracy (Basically, if you haven’t fired recently. It is different per weapon)
  • Headshot critical hits have been reduced
  • Shotguns are now 150% damage (was 250%).
  • All other weapons with headshot crits are now 200% damage (was 250%).

Damage fall-off has been introduced for some weapons

  • Damage applies at 100% to a fixed range.
  • Fall-off begins at different ranges (depending on the weapon), and decreases to 70% damage.
  • Sniper Rifles, Rocket/Grenade Launchers, and Shotguns are unaffected.

Other balance adjustments

  • Semi-Auto Sniper has had its damage increased to 75/78 (from 63/66).
  • Scoped Assault Rifle has had its damage increased to 25/26 (from 23/24).
  • +2 Base damage to all SMGs.
